Console Competition

This time we offer you the chance to take part with your crazy console demos in the MS console competition. You can participate with any game console you like for example, Atari 2600, Megadrive, SNES, Vectrex, Game Boy (Standard, Colour or Advanced), PlayStation (also One or PS2), N64, or Dreamcast. Of course you are allowed to bring every other console you like, but please just make sure that you're following these rules:

  • There is no size limit; get the full POWER out of your machine and kick some ass.
  • You must deliver your demo already recorded on video tape, in PAL VHS or S-VHS. And bring your game console with you so that you can prove that the video tape is not faked! (otherwise you will be disqualified!). If you have problems recording your demo, please get in contact with us before the party (Thank you.)
  • Of course you must be present at the party.
  • Lame demos will be disqualified :))

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me. gott@ms.demo.org.

Wild Competition

Here you can deliver anything that doesn't fit into the other categories. We will not have separate Wild ("classic") and Video competitions, as the number of entries in the former would be too low. The most welcome contribution medium is a VHS or S-VHS tape recorded in PAL; you can optionally hand in a graphics file containing some information about the hardware used to create your entry. If you can't tape the thing yourself (if you are using really Wild hardware...) please contact us in advance.

There aren't many restrictions on this competition. Your entry should be related to computers, though. People are not interested in watching yet another skateboard video. Please help keeping this competition interesting!

There is a maximum time limit of 8 minutes, and a quality preselection will be done. Stuff that is absolutely irrelevant will be thrown out in order to make the competition more interesting.
